The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has sought to clarify a recent statement in the media regarding the creation of 25 new constituencies ahead of the 2024 General Elections.
In an official response, the Commission has confirmed that only one constituency will be created, namely the Guan Constituency in the Oti Region.
The Commission categorically denies any decision to create an additional 25 constituencies and urges the public to disregard the inaccurate information circulating in the media.
The creation of the Guan Constituency aligns with the Electoral Commission’s mandate to periodically review and re-demarcate constituencies, ensuring fair representation for citizens.
The process of constituency creation involves extensive consultation, data analysis, and adherence to legal procedures.
The Electoral Commission emphasizes its commitment to transparency and maintaining the integrity of the electoral process.
It is crucial for the public to rely on credible sources of information and avoid spreading false or misleading reports, according to the Commission.
The Electoral Commission urges the media and the general public to verify any information related to constituency creation through official channels, saying that the Commission remains dedicated to conducting free, fair, and credible elections.
As the 2024 General Election approaches, the Electoral Commission is focused on ensuring a level playing field for all political parties and candidates.
The Commission encourages stakeholders and citizens to actively participate in the electoral process, exercise their right to vote, and engage in peaceful and constructive political discourse.
